Because of my own strange set of medical issues, I am the first to tell you I didn't nurse the Blog Carnival the way I should have/could have. And today is the Reveal Day.
I haven't poked around a lot, so am not sure what else is out there, but a kind soul let me know about this important piece.
"The worst part about this is that it isn't like a scholarship "buys away" racism. It goes a very small distance towards alleviating a tremendous body of counter forces that I've not done much justice to describe. A small, pitiful distance. I suspect that a small, pitiful distance is as far as we'll ever get."
"African American infants are more than two times likely to die during the first year of life than white infants. Why is there such a disparity?"
I'd love to add more information, pieces from now or before. Feel free to submit. I'll work on my own piece this weekend. Thanks for everyone's patience.
